Jean-Marc Melancon

Jean Marc wants to live in a world where every child has the opportunity to truly laugh and be happy.

As the director of sports & registration he has been excited about the growth of the event year after year. He is deeply moved by the number of participants who return every year and he now recognizes and knows on a first name basis.

When he is not at work, you can find Jean Marc volunteering with the Scouts et Guides d’Orleans or on his favorite local golf course or driving range with his son Alexandre.

Jean Marc has been involved with the CHEO BBQ since 2004. It was the year before his first son was born, and he truly learned the value of the CHEO when his son required open heart surgery before he was two months old.

His motto for growing the CHEO BBQ is

“If it is hard, it’s because what you are doing is important”.
